2017 Notice of Nomination and Annual Regional Meetings

We thank Will Kingma and Marcel Rupert for their dedication in providing six years of their time on the Alberta Pork Board.  With that said, if you’d like to be a part of the board and do some important work on behalf of your fellow producers, this is a great opportunity give a little of yourself to help all in the industry.

For 2017, there are two Director-at-Large positions up for election as both Will and Marcel are required to step down after their term has ended. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Alberta Pork Board please complete the attached nomination form and return it, with a nominee biography and photo, to Alberta Pork’s office by 4:00 pm on Friday, January 20, 2017.

Nomination forms can be sent to the Chief Returning Officer, Darcy Fitzgerald, by email to darcy.fitzgerald@albertapork.com, by fax to 780-479-5128 or by mail to Alberta Pork, 4828-89 Street, Edmonton AB T6E 5K1.
